OH CANADA: Imagine, politicians that know something about the department they head. How strange is that? On the other hand, The Trump administration has truly let the foxes into the henhouse, turning over control of vital government agencies to incompetents, science deniers from corporate stooges to ideological zealots who aggressively attack sound science when it gets in the way of their agenda. Furthermore, President Trump has done more damage to our planet than any president in modern history. He’s:
- Withdrawn us from the Paris Climate Agreement out of spite
- Nominated a climate change denier to run the Environmental Protection Agency
- Unleashed a budget that slashes key climate and clean energy programs
- Stripped the words “climate change” out of EPA documents and FEMA disaster response plans
-Took steps to roll back Obama-era car emissions standards
More to the point: you know they didn't get up there by themselves, they don't belong up there, they don't know what to do while they are up there. They are elevated beyond their ability to function. Civility, class, style have gone by the wayside, hysteria has taken over, elected politicians resort to innuendos, sneers, manipulation, misrepresentation, greed, and unsubstantiated attacks of the opposite side just because it is the opposite side. I fear that the rules our nation so successfully followed for more than 200 years were designed for another time, a different breed of human beings.
